Nato is a peaceful organization and EU is democratic partner so as f.e. Saudi Arabia, also all Russians are always liars, remember that

Fantastic photos, love that old-style-lane markings that at least more countries used to have (Spain and Sweden still have f.e.).

Those Belgrad photos remind me from that Helsinki I have just seen in old photos and videos - as many car lanes as possible.

Speaking of Beograd and Beogradski fantom,

here are some (seem historical) sequences of Beograd (intro of the film).

Highway of Death
Bombed vehicles litter both sides of the road, which was given a new name in yellow: Saddam's Mutla.


New Road Sign
On the same road north of the Highway of Death area and toward the Iraq border


Highway to Hell
A hand-painted sign by American soldiers near the Iraqi border



Road Sign 10 Km from the Border
The graffiti was left by American soldiers. Bombed vehicles are in the background.



The graffiti says KIA (killed in action) by US troops from Arkansas. The Hogs are the University of Arkansas' football team.

Altered Road Sign
Saddam Hussein has renamed the region as "Jerusalem area" to bolster his claim that Kuwait was invaded as part of a plan to "liberate Jerusalem."


Altered Road Sign
Jubilant Kuwaitis have unofficially renamed Baghdad Street as Bush Street.



Altered Street Signs
In an attempt to "confuse the enemy," Kuwaitis defaced many of their direction signs - an act of resistance with severe penalties for those caught. Signs were blotted out chiefly to keep Iraqi troops away from homes.

Road signs in Genoa in 1960. It seems they used black letters on white background for urban destinations (Pegli) and the autostrada, and normal white text\blue background for other destinations.

The photo is about a political uprising that took place on 30 June 1960, after the Christian Democracy party (centre) formed a government cohalition with the Italian Social Movement (neo-fascists), causing the opposition of a large part of the public opinion, and some riots in different cities. The government collapsed after few months.

Belgrade ones look Western-European. I remember that when I was first time in Austria in 1994, and two years later in Germany.

In Czechoslovakia we used much more uglier.
Oldest:

Older rectangular:

Older rounded (very popular in past)

Modern ones:

This one is very classic for the DDR. But they had that one in some parts of the former of Sovjet union too. But one very interesting thing. We got some of those in Sweden too. A lot of them in Sweden had western style in the cold war. But some of them had eastern style. This model was exist in Sweden sometimes. We did not had a lot of them, but they was exist. Another Eastern European style who was very popular in Sweden in the cold war was one in Polish style. It was produced in Sweden but very similar to the Polish ones from the same time. So Sweden was a mix of Western European and East European style in the Cold war

Yes! You are right! Belgrade ones look very Western. They have same style like Belgium and France. Also in the UK they have some streetligts similar to the Belgrade ones

Call me an ignorant, but what is the difference between West- and East European styles of this era?

It is hard to explain but there really was such a difference.

For instance, several years after the German unification, the only remaining structures revealing whether one was traveling in the former West or East, were the street lamps.

Those lamps produced by LBL were exported into many East European countries during the previous organizational model. That is why they made kind of a baseline for an Eastern street view.

Kenya, can't recognise the road A picture comes from "Ekspedicjia Kragujevać - Kilimanjaro", which had taken place in 1975. It's main purpose was to prove Zastava's endurance and capability to perform well in "hostile" road environment.
